JENNY BLAZING:


“In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous”. – Aristotle
Blazing’s rich, textural abstract landscapes suggest familiar places even as their ceramic, tiled quality transports them to a liminal space just beyond the threshold of reality. These dreamscapes invite us to reflect not only on the beauty of our planet, but also on our own complex relationship with this (un)real world as we contemplate our emergence from sheltering in place.



The Hills are Alive

In this work, Blazing envisions the landscape as a reflection and continuation of the viewer’s undulating, dynamic consciousness.



A Path Emerges
Impasto acrylic painting on cradled panel

LESLIE PRUNEAU


Artist Leslie Pruneau creates sheets of pure acrylic paint in an abstract style, letting them dry and then cuts them up to use in her acrylic assemblages.
***All works available for pickup in Raleigh/Durham, or shipping available upon request.***

 


LINKED UP.
In this piece Leslie Pruneau has disassembled traditional applications developing a new technique of an inter-woven and layered process to create a portrayal of our society today. The work seeks a certain balance within its own chaos, similarly to what people do, not only with their own personal relasionships but with their realtionssip to planet earth as well. Acrylic skins assembled on panel, 8 x 8 x 2 inches.
$425.




BUNDLE.
With a complex technique and weaving-like process, this small assemblage seems to be barely holding itself together, while bits of colorful bursts energetically work to escape the confines of its substrate.
Acrylic skins assembled on cradled panel, 3 x 3 x 2 inches.
$325.




THE TALK.
A two-piece diptych of alternating strips of assembled acrylic skins of two chairs that are in a dialogue. Upon closer look, one can see the pairs are not alike, perhaps implying this ‘talk’ is of the same topic, but takes place over a span of time.

$385.

YUKO NOGAMI TAYLOR


**Nihonga painting: Japanese style paintings using traditional Japanese artistic practices and materials that was developed after 1900 as a response to combat Japan’s infatuation with Western culture by emphasizing the native Japanese traditional arts. However, it is not merely a continuation of the older Japanese painting traditions, but has broader subjects as well as including more stylistic and technical elements from several traditional schools, all blended together. In addition, some Western painting techniques such as perspective and shading have been adopted into the Nihonga genre.**



DURHAM – my DURM, with HOPE.
“I saw that the deserted Durham downtown street with tragic episodes. We took many years to build this town back to a lively one.  It has become a booming street with new taste and our own diversity but we need to work more.  We will come back to an even better town, safe, equal, and natural place that we can unite to feel good about us.”   
Nihonga painting, washi paper on birch panel. 18 x 18 x 1.75 inches.
$750.



SILVER MOON IV.
“The leaves are an homage to the painter T. Isson, who painted the nature of Amami Island, Japan.  He painted vivid tropical plants and bright sunlight and its shadow contrast for the first time in Nihonga subject.   In this painting, I breakthrough some traditions of what Nihonga is supposed to be.  One of the traditions I love to follow is to include Kachofugetsu, which contains flower (plants), bird (living object), wind (atmosphere) and moon (universe).  Simply, this brings a balance of universe to me.”   
Nihonga painting, stretched washi paper, 11 x 14 inches matted with boxed frame (16×20 framed).
$475.



LOTUS POND.
“The mountain of my painting represents a person’s life.  I used patina blue-green fine pigment in the background mixed with resin.  The silver foil I used is authentically pounded to be it’s finest thickness, I cut with bamboo knife and applied.  White is calcium carbonate, that is coming from Dried Oyster shell.  The mountain red is mixed the clam with cochineal dye. Enjoy the reflection of the universe. “
Nihonga painting, washi paper on birch panel 12 x 12 with natural walnut floater frame (16×20 framed).
$450.



SUSAN WOODSON.


“Hello Bird”
“This series started a few years ago when my son & daughter in law lived in Uganda, Africa in the Peace Corps. We visited and I was mesmerized  by the  birds.  Upon my return I started painting birds inspired from my experience.  Many people purchased them. They would come back and tell me as they passed the painting in their homes they would greet it and say “Hello Bird”. I am bringing back the series calling it “Hello  Bird”. They are full of fun, joy and happiness.”
